Planning a cookout for the 4th of July, or any other day during the warm weather for that matter? If you're serving burgers and plan on offering cheese as one of the toppings, consider visiting the deli counter at your local market. You'll often have a wider selection of cheese varieties to choose from, you can buy only as much as you need, and you can specify the thickness. Plus, ultra-thin, fresh sliced cheese will melt into a nice even layer.
The deli counter is also the perfect source for fresh sliced cold cuts next time you're making an antipasto platter or are just craving a good sub or sandwich.
